Quite an intriguing scent. I find it to be in two phases.
1. Excellent verbena. Typical lemon - fresh basil - baked bread. A very refreshing citrus scent at this point. Natural-smelling and enjoyable.
2. A quick morph into a rather substantial spicy-moss scent. Earthy vetiver. Smoky notes and a hint of something like tobacco leaf. As this develops, the chord seems like a kinder, gentler "dirty ashtray" note which I also find to a heightened extent in Tom Ford Tuscan Cypress. I like that note better here, it is under control.

The initial blast of verbena and vetiver declares this as a fresh summery scent; this top note lasts about half an hour on me. It then develops added deeper green notes and a distinct light wood and moss note that remains the basenote that remains close to my skin until it fades after about three hours. The ingredients appear to be of good quality, and this is a very nice version of a common theme. More sophisticated than many other verbena scents.
Very fresh and green scent with a very distinctive, slightly bitter edge to it due to verbena and vetiver. For sure not the usual sporty men fragrance, it has a classic yet casual character to it. Leaves an amazing trail, is great on my boyfriend.
